    Nice truck. What's the final overall payload capacity with that dump bed? I always thought the 1 ton dumps ran out of payload quickly because of the weight of the dump bed, frame, and hydraulics. Again nice truck at a great price too!

    Hey, I'm starting to get calls for pile pickups and as usual never got to getting a box on my dump trailer. Are you interested in referals for pile pickups?

    I got a 2010 last fall just like your 2011. It has been great plowing last winter and doing my work this summer. I think you'll love that truck.. I also went with gas because of the big difference between it and diesel.

    I guess those beds with tiny sides are good for a sander insert but besides that those trucks seem to hold too little to be of much use. For hauling a 6.7 Cummins and a tandem dually dump trailer is my workhorse setup of choice.

    It's interesting how up north budget minded people in general tend to favor spark plugs and longevity minded contractors down south tend to favor oil burners that can haul twice as much.
